The Church of Scientology is launching its own television network on DirecTV as well as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast and Roku devices.
Right now, the network’s website shows a countdown clock with the tagline “Curious? We Thought So.” Programming is scheduled to premiere at 8 p.m. EST on Monday, March 12.
The Hollywood Reporter over the weekend confirmed the launch. A DirecTV spokesperson told the publication that Scientology Network will take over the channel 320 slot, which is currently unoccupied on the service’s channel guide.
The description for the app says users will have access to the live network and full episodes of series including “Meet a Scientologist,” “Voices for Humanity,” “L. Ron Hubbard: In His Own Voice” and more. The app also offers Scientology films and lets users create profiles in order to sync viewing across different devices and platforms.
In 2016, the Church of Scientology, headed by leader David Miscavige, officially opened its own $50 million television and film studio complex on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
“Our uncorrupted communication line to the billions. Because as the saying goes, if you don't write your own story, someone else will,” Miscavige said during the opening event. “So, yes, we're now going to be writing our story like no other religion in history. And it's all going to happen right here from Scientology Media Productions.”
